'Shark Tank's Namita Thapar reacts to trolls with new post
Namita Thapar, who came into the limelight after the roll-out of the show Shark Tank India, has become the talk of the town. The TV personality is currently facing backlash after she accused her house help of posting "hate messages." Now, she has shared a brief clip from a recent interview with the caption, "vicious trolling that doesn't even spare a sweet teenager."
Why does this story matter?
- A few days ago, a photo of Namita Thapar was shared on her Instagram account that claimed to be put up by one of her two sons Jai and Vir.
- The post, now deleted, contained a hate message and suggested unfollowing her.
- Later, Thapar alleged online that her "educated house help," and not her son, had posted the message from her phone.
Netizens weren't convinced by her previous clarification
Even though Thapar tried to explain her side of the story to her followers, netizens didn't seem to be ready to settle this just yet. Twitter users posted sarcastic comments on her story, while some showed their disappointment and suggested letting her social media manager handle the situation and come up with a better excuse! Another user said, "I am out of this."
What did Thapar's latest post say?
Given many social media users didn't buy the fact that a housemaid had made the posts, trolling continued. And, the Shark reacted to it using a clipping. Here, she spoke about being a "vulnerable leader." "This 1 min video is why I don't get off social media in spite of the vicious trolling that doesn't even spare a sweet teenager," her caption read.
